  1. #Given in bold are the novel variants found in this study. *SNPs used for haplotyping: S1, rs17565841; S2, rs12592307 (p.S788S); S3, rs1800411 (p.C517C); S4, rs1900758; S5, rs1800410; S6, rs10852218; S7, rs1800404; S8, rs12913832. According to Feb. 2009 UCSC Human Genome browser assembly (GRCh37/hg19), the S2 to S6 are present within the coding (S2 and S3) or intronic regions of OCA2. §Human Splicing Finder program ( predicted a cryptic splice donor site 12 nucleotide upstream of known splice acceptor site for exon 9 due to the mutation. ¥Conserved regulatory element sequence present within intron 86 of the HERC2 gene. N/A not applicable. TM transmembrane domain. TMpred-Prediction of transmembrane regions and orientation ( was used for OCA2 domain prediction.
